What doesn’t kill you, makes you angrier
You can use a bonus action to put a counter on a target creature that you can see and that is in 5ft. from you, you deal 1d4 damage to yourself when you use this feature, everytime you use this feature on the same target after the first time you add 1+half of your Slaughterer level to the damage you deal to yourself (this damage stacks). The enemy takes 1d4 bonus damage for each counter he has on himself when you deal damage to him. The d4 (you deal to enemies and to yourself) becomes a d6 at level 8, a d8 at level 12, a d10 at level 16 and a d12 at level 20. You can’t use this feature if you would go under 10% of your total hp (rounded down) doing it.
